Here we are! We made it to the end of the course. We just had our last feedback session. As a trainer, I am so impressed with this group. There are always special strengths about each group I train, but with this group it was feedback. They were hesitant at the beginning, but now they are able to facilitate their own feedback session and I don’t participate at all. They analyze the lesson and come up with insightful points about what helped or hindered their students’ learning and I just get to sit back and enjoy the ride :). I am so proud of them.
As a way to say goodbye I asked them how they felt. Most of them gave a huge sigh and started reminiscing about in jokes from practice teaching, but here are some of their thoughts.
“It’s a bitter-sweet feeling.”
“Wow! time flies!”
“I regret some things, but I am satisfied with other things!”
“I will keep working!”
“I want to learn more!”
“I can’t believe we can get a certificate!”
I am so proud of them and I wish them all the luck in the future!
